We are rooting for Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he battles against the relentless coronavirus

Stay strong, PM

LIKE the rest of the nation, we are rooting for the Prime Minister as he battles against this relentless virus.

The grim news that he was rushed into intensive care will come as yet another stark reminder that the savage coronavirus can strike anyone, anywhere and at any time.

Doctors monitoring the PM became alarmed at his deterioration yesterday afternoon before moving him to the ICU at 7pm. We know he couldn’t be in safer hands and — like so many others — is now entrusted to the heroes of our NHS.

As a strong leader, Boris will be determined to fight through this so he can guide the country out of the crisis.

Our thoughts are with his family, especially his pregnant fiancée Carrie, at this worrying time.

Stay strong, Prime Minister — we wish you a speedy recovery.

Give now to The Sun's NHS appeal

BRITAIN’s four million NHS staff are on the frontline in the battle against coronavirus.

But while they are helping save lives, who is there to help them?

The Sun has launched an appeal to raise £1MILLION for NHS workers.

The Who Cares Wins Appeal aims to get vital support to staff in their hour of need.

We have teamed up with NHS Charities Together in their urgent Covid-19 Appeal to ensure the money gets to exactly who needs it.

The Sun is donating £50,000 and we would like YOU to help us raise a million pounds, to help THEM.

No matter how little you can spare, please donate today here

Vigilance is key

NOW is not the time to let our guard down.

The grim daily total of deaths from coronavirus dropped slightly yesterday, while the growth in new hospital admissions had slowed, but they are small mercies and each is still a tragedy.

Yes, there are hopeful signs that the lockdown is working but it will only do so if we continue to stay at home.

Meanwhile, there needs to be some common sense shown in other quarters.

It was utterly wrong for councils to shut parks in densely populated areas because some people were not practising social distancing in the sunshine.

Not everyone has the luxury of a garden or the countryside on their doorstep.

Fine those who brazenly flout the rules, by all means, but don’t punish those living in crowded tower blocks who are just trying to find space to exercise in fresh air.

Duch of class

DID anyone ever doubt that, when the chips were down, the British people would respond?

Today the Duchess of Cornwall will lead an army of volunteer responders to help the NHS and the vulnerable and isolated within our communities.

The good Samaritans are ready to begin delivering medicines, driving patients to appointments, transporting supplies and checking on those at risk.

Camilla, President of the Royal Voluntary Service, herself had a “check in and chat” call with pensioner Doris Winfield.

It is worth remembering that when the call went out a fortnight ago for 250,000 volunteers, more than 750,000 signed up in just four days.

Before the coronavirus, many of them would have volunteered with the thousands of charities which are the backbone of our society but which now face a financial crisis.

If the Government wants those charities to still exist when the crisis is over, it needs to help them now.
